The Samsung XCover6 Pro 5G rugged phone targets business users, but anyone can buy the phone and benefit from its formidable design. The phone has a 6.6-inch LCD screen with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+ to prevent scratches and cracks. In addition, the screen has enhanced touch capabilities for using gloves on the screen even when the display is wet. Samsung says the phone passed MIL-STD-810G testing. The XCover Pro also has an ingress protection rating of IP68, which makes the phones especially resistant to particles (dust, dirt, and sand) and water.
Don’t expect flagship phone performance as you’d find on Samsung’s Galaxy S series. It includes an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G processor, 6 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of onboard storage, which is upgradable to 1 TB via the microSD card slot. For imaging, the XCover6 Pro has a 50 MP main and an 8 MP ultrawide rear camera array, and a 32 MP front camera, which is more than enough to suit most users.
The phone has dual SIM support (one Nano SIM and one eSim). The phone also has a removable battery, which means you can always have a second battery at the ready. Since it’s intended for enterprise environments, the phone ships with Samsung’s enterprise firmware for over-the-air updates, and it supports Knox Platform for Enterprise for security and Knox Manage for device management.
